I did the Everest Base Camp Trek in Feb 2023 and had an incredible time. The team at Outshine Adventures were superb in providing timely information, accommodation and ensuring I had the proper gear before the trek. They were also kind enough to help me retrieve my luggage from the airport which was delayed upon arrival in Nepal. The Outshine team provided a fantastic day tour of Kathmandu prior to the trek, where I was able to learn more about the culture and city with a very experienced guide, making the beginning of this trip that much more exciting. The trek itself was unbelievably stunning and was both a humbling and an amazing experience. My guide, Dillisher Katuwal was truly world class in both his experience of the mountains as well as ensuring I was safe each step of the way. Trekking with him was incredibly enjoyable and rewarding. For anyone considering any form of adventure to Nepal, I would highly recommend this company as well as Dillisher Katuwal as your guide.

What an incredible company to work with. Pretravels the communication was excellent. Always got a response to all my questions. Upon arrival pick up and hotel registration went very smooth. The hotel was in a great location and was very clean. The actual tours where 5 star. I had a knowledgably Sherpa during my trek that was fantastic and I felt safe during my entire travels. Outshine is a great company to tour with. Everything went smoothly and they went beyond my expectations to meet my needs. I recommend 100%.

excellent trip! the Driver picked Me up from the hotel and took me to the airport, where we met our pilot and the tour guide who was with us the whole way. the entire trip was worth every penny! we had an unbelievable view of Mt. Everest and we got to eat breakfast at a great hotel at 12000 feet!

A fantastic hike, wonderful scenery and a breathtaking view of Mount Everest. First-class organization. I recommend this tour and the company.
